My favorite is tacos and this recipe for the meat is too delicious:
Ingredients
  • 2 teaspoons dried minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup water

Directions

  1. Mix minced onion, salt, chili powder, cornstarch, cumin, red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper, dried minced garlic, and oregano in a bowl.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Crumble ground beef into the hot skillet. Cook and stir until the beef is completely browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Drain and discard any excess grease.
  3. Return ground beef to heat. Pour seasoning mixture and water over the beef; stir to combine. Bring to a simmer and cook until the moisture absorbs into the meat, about 5 minutes.
